Fixed Term Recruitment
Fixed term contracts are often a source of confusion as their purpose is often misunderstood. At face value, it would seem that this is the same as a temporary contract as you would assume it means taking someone for a fixed period of time. However the fixed-term changes the meaning, and in fact, it is the terms of the contract not the time length of the contract that is the crucial factor.
So What is a Fixed Term Contract?
A fixed term contract relates to the actual terms of the contract which remain the same for the duration of the contract, but it means that you can be more flexible with the length of the contract. Rather than saying you need someone for say two weeks, you can look for someone to help complete a specific project. Now, you might not know how long this will be; it might be until a busy period settles down, it might take longer than you would estimate. Using fixed term recruitment gives you the flexibility to keep the contract going without having to specify a concrete end date.
Total Flexibility & Care With Contracts
In order to make sure that contracted staff are not being used and abused we have a responsibility as employers to navigate the myriad of paperwork and rules and regulations found in employment law. Thankfully here at Outstaff we can take care of all of that for you, and guarantee the staff you have placed from us are fully compliant and confirm that your terms and contract are also watertight, so you are fully protected on both sides, for your peace of mind.
Care With Candidates
To ensure that we are meeting all the obligations surrounding the compliance of the staff we place we have a robust screening process that we use will all applicants regardless of the length of contract or role that they are applying for. We have developed this over time and are confident that it covers everything that could possibly be needed. Not all checks apply to all roles, but there is a core set that does have to be carried out with every single candidate that applies. Things like checking they have the right to work in the UK, that they have the qualifications they have cited on their application form, and taking up references with previous employers.
